Begonia pearcei (dormant tuber)

This Andean tuberous species is a stunning thing. Single, sizable, clear lemon flowers are the perfect adornment for the dark green, silver-veined foliage. This tuberous species needs a cool-ish and dry rest in the winter - during which time it will be totally leafless.

Plants offered here are flowering size tubers, currently dormant (resting / leafless).

Keep in mind that these,  like many of the other tuberous South American species, may not be good choices for overly warm climates.  In general, this species, and other Andean ones like it can be somewhat of a challenge.
